Hello. I live in the Seattle area. Is it legal for a US citizen to hunt moose in B.C. without the use of a guide service?
I would love to hunt in Canada (great country, great people, and WAY closer than Alaska), but to save money I would like to do it myself.
Any info would be great.
Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, non-residents of Canada cannot hunt moose or any other big game species without a licensed guide.
Quoted from the BC Hunting & Trapping Regulation Synopsis
"Non-residents of British Columbia hunting big game must be accompanied by either a licensed BC guide or a resident who holds a Permit to Accompany."
"A non-resident who is not a resident of Canada and is not a Canadian citizen, may also be eligible under the Permit to Accompany providing they qualify under one of the required relationship categories."
Read more from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
All the best,
"The Moose Man"
